    Molecular mechanism to target the endosomal Mon1-Ccz1 GEF complex to the pre-autophagosomal structure

    Jieqiong Gao et al.
    The endosomal GEF Mon1-Ccz1 binds to Atg8 on autophagosomes, and recruits its substrate, the Rab7-like Ypt7, which then mediates fusion of the autophagosomes with the lysosome.

    Kinetics of the LOV domain of ZEITLUPE determine its circadian function in Arabidopsis

    Ashutosh Pudasaini et al.
    In the plant circadian clock photoreceptor ZEITLUPE, evolutionarily selected residues distinguish photocycle kinetics and allosteric signal transduction pathways to permit proper circadian timing.

    The Na+/Ca2+, K+ exchanger NCKX4 is required for efficient cone-mediated vision

    Frans Vinberg et al.
    Molecular, genetic, and functional analysis is used to show that the olfactory Na+/Ca2+, K+ exchanger NCKX4 is expressed in cone photoreceptors and is critical for the wide operating range and high temporal resolution of cone-mediated vision.

    An effector of the Irish potato famine pathogen antagonizes a host autophagy cargo receptor

    Yasin F Dagdas et al.
    A plant pathogen effector evolved a short linear motif to subvert autophagic defenses by antagonising a host cargo receptor.

    Sec24 phosphorylation regulates autophagosome abundance during nutrient deprivation

    Saralin Davis et al.
    Phosphorylation of a core trafficking component, the COPII coat subunit Sec24, regulates cross-talk between the secretory and autophagy machinery during starvation.

    Identification of polarized macrophage subsets in zebrafish

    Mai Nguyen-Chi et al.
    The discovery of evolutionarily conserved macrophage subsets in zebrafish paves the way for a comprehensive study of macrophage behaviour and function.

    Epidermal barrier defects link atopic dermatitis with altered skin cancer susceptibility

    Sara Cipolat et al.
    A mouse model of atopic dermatitis provides mechanistic evidence for an association between allergic disease and skin cancer.

    Neuronal cell fate diversification controlled by sub-temporal action of Kruppel

    Johannes Stratmann et al.
    A combination of temporal and sub-temporal genes combine to move the stem cell through different competence windows to generate different cell types at different time-points in Drosophila.

    Ovulation in Drosophila is controlled by secretory cells of the female reproductive tract

    Jianjun Sun, Allan C Spradling
    Secretory cells in the fruit fly reproductive tract produce secretions that control ovulation through a conserved mechanism that could provide insights into ovarian cancer.

    The kinase DYRK1A reciprocally regulates the differentiation of Th17 and regulatory T cells

    Bernard Khor et al.
    A chemical biology approach has identified the kinase DYRK1A as a new regulator of the inflammatory response.
